I am planning on buying some powerbanks and chargers of amazon that claim to be able to charge the Chuwi Hi13 And will edit the post once I receive them and wether they work or not.
Popwinds 20400mAh; Amazon (Good quality, but not recommended for the Chuwi Hi13)
Doesn't really work,Led is on but percentage goes down. So it gives 12V but only at 1/1.5A. Discharge rate is faster than charge rate.
Anker PowerCore+ 26800; Amazon (Same as the above)
Doesn't really work, same issue as the Powerbank above. Discharge rate is faster than charge rate.
RAVpower 26800 USB PD; Amazon (Price: 51,99GBP) RECOMMENDED*
Works perfectly, Charge monitors say it charges at the same rate as the original charger which will be 12V 2A. It went from 80 to 90 in 20 minutes.
[* Reasons being: It is 26800mAh, which is just under 100W, so you will be able to travel on planes with it safely (See graphic for more info/100W), It is the cheapest one at that capacity that works, It is RAVpower => Good quality]
Anker PowerCore+ 26800 PD; Amazon
Newly released. Seems to be similar to the cheaper RAVpower. (It is almost double the price of the RAVpower though)
Aukey USB C charger: Amazon.de, amazon.co.uk, amazon.com RECOMMENDED*Works, comfirmed
[* Reasons being; It is cheap, compact and works without adapters]Anker powercore+ Type C 60W wall charger: Amazon (Prices on amazon .co.uk/.com/.de: 29.99GBP/39.99USD/50,49Euro)
Xiaomi USB C power adapter: Gearbest
To clear things up a bit more so if others want to look around for some too:
>I read in XDA that these tablets are NOT compatible with quickcharge or samsungs’ adaptive charging. Hence why the samsung charger Chris (Techtablets) ordered will not work.
>It is very hard to find compatible chargers because not only does it need to be usb PD compatible but it also needs to be able to output 12V and from what I read it is up to the manufacturer to add that 12V in.
>USB PD = 5, 9, 15 and 20V always and 12V is their choice/ manufacturer chooses that. => USB PD powerbanks will not necessarily output 12V unless the manufacturer specificly wants it to.
So to conclude: What are we looking for? Powerbanks with USB-PD compatibility and 12V at minimum 2A
Most others will NOT work.
Recently someone bought a charger which is USB PD but it doesn't mention to ouput 12V. Only 5, 9 and 15V. It worked.
So normally, if this is the truth, theabove mentioned powerbanks (The RAVpower and the Anker) will work too.
